Liquorland Nelson Wins Prestigious Award

Liquorland Nelson franchisees, Gavin Snowball and Cheryl Scott have claimed the highly esteemed Gold Franchisee of the Year Award for a second time at the 2013 National Liquorland Conference Gala Dinner held at Wairakei Resort in Taupo.

Andrew Lawrence of Treasury Wine Estates, sponsor of the Gold Award, was delighted to announce that winners, Gavin and Cheryl, will receive “an overseas wine education experience that money can’t buy.”

He said, “These franchisees are evidence that a clear strategy, commitment to excellence, incredible hard work and genuine customer focus is very hard to beat and that winning for a second year in succession proved the first wasn’t good luck!”

Liquorland CEO Rod Gibson also congratulated Liquorland Thames franchisee Geoff Henderson who was awarded Silver Franchisee of the Year.

Rod said, “This store is situated in a very competitive market driven by price and new owner Geoff had concentrated on establishing in store range, pricing and superior customer service to meet the needs of the market resulting in double digit growth in customers and in key categories.”

The Bronze Franchisee of the Year Award went to Liquorland Mosgiel Franchisee, David Mercer. Passion for excellence, excellent store standards and customer service, including phenomenal growth in Fly Buys spend, which all significantly lifted performance, were the reasons given for this store’s success.

Amie Murphy from Liquorland Fitzroy in New Plymouth took home the prestigious Sel Granger Memorial Award Cup for 2013. The Sel Granger Memorial Award is awarded to a store that emulates the same spirit, passion and determination to succeed as the late Sel Granger of Liquorland Howick. Aime claimed the award for demonstrating commitment to Liquorland and the focus she puts onto the development of the store and its staff and the manner in which she performs as leader at the Fitzroy store.
